Glittering Starling - a Common Starling

We went to Jodhpur for our nation conference of Anatomy. Whenever we went to new place to visit. We tried to meet few birder their so we can meet more people and can do birding also.

One of my favorite birds to click due to its glittering color. We are luck to sight starling in sunlight so its true color can see.
Starlings are chunky and blackbird-sized, but with short tails and long, slender beaks. In flight their wings are short and pointed, making them look rather like small, four-pointed stars (and giving them their name).

You have to be the chosen one.   Dr. Pankaj Maheria, a Professor at GMERS Medical College, Valsad (South Gujarat) is one such Chosen One. Birds have chosen him as a medium between their worl
